Shane Warne rants over BA first-class on Twitter
Melbourne: Shane Warne took to Twitter to vent out his anger over the British Airways flight he took for his trip to the US.
The disappointed cricketer was sent into a spin over an uncomfortable flight from London to the US, and has vowed to never again fly British Airways.
Warne, who was travelling first-class, took to Twitter to vent about the seating plan, the captain, the breath of a fellow passenger and the crew.
He was heading to Las Vegas, where he took part in the Ante Up for Africa poker tournament, and he let fly a flurry of furious tweets.
"I hate British airways, way to arrogant and rude towards people !! Will not be flying with them again after my return from Vegas," a website quoted Warne as saying on his Twitter page.
"Now on plane grumpy and listening to capt tell me how high we will fly what direction his taking off blah blah.. Just shut up let us chill," he added.
Two minutes later he said: "They spoke to this young family in front of me like they where criminals, they where travelling first class to, so rude and abnoxious (sic)."
Then, seven minutes later he noted: "Oh by the way I can smell the guys breath to me he is so close, rubbish seat pattern.. Hate this airline !!!"
Six minutes later the air-conditioning went off, sending Warne into a further spin.
"Now capt apologizing for no a/c !!! Seriously this could be one of the worst flying experience of my life.. SHUT UP CAPT !" he tweeted.
"Look I`m very lucky to travel first class, but the way British airways have spoken to the people and treated everyone, is a disgrace."
"Now capt apologizing for no a/c it`s boiling, has not stopped talking !!! SHUT UP," he continued.
Thirty-five minutes after his first travel advisory warnings against the airways, Warne made it clear how unhappy he was with the situation.
"This trip sucks," he posted.
